Ocean State Hops is bringing hops back to Rhode Island. Fueled by a passion to cram as many hops into each batch of beer as humanly possible, we decided to start growing our own. And with our recent expansions, we are happy to be able to supply hops to other brewers looking to quench their thirst for hops.

Tilted Barn Brewery

Nearly 7 years since planting our first rhizomes, Ocean State Hops is closing its doors. Sort of.  The bad news is that we will no longer be selling our hops to the public.  Sad, we know.  The good news is that this is because all of our hops will be going to Tilted Barn Brewery.  We're proud to have founded Rhode Island's first commercial hop farm and are even more excited to be opening the Ocean State's first farm brewery.  For more information, check out Tilted Barn Brewery on Facebook and Twitter, and keep an eye out for www.tiltedbarnbrewery.com which is in the works as we speak.

We'd like to send out a huge thanks to everyone that has supported us over the past 7 years, from the homebrewers that traveled far and wide to visit the farm for pick-your-own hops, to Craft Brews Supplies for stocking our hops on their shelves, and Newport Storm for not only using our hops in their beers but for helping to harvest them as well.  We're humbled by the support you've all shown and are looking forward to seeing you at the brewery in the coming weeks!

Pick Your Own This Weekend!

Harvest is here! We're going to start off with pick-your-own hops this Sunday the 25th from 10:00-4:00. Come by the farm and get a vine to take home or hang out right at the farm to pick (bring your own paper bags if you're going to pick at the farm). $12 per vine and we have Cascade and Newport available. The farm is located on Route 2 in Exeter just south of Schartner Farms (directly south of Hallene Farm). Turn onto James Place, a small dirt road, and follow the signs to the hops! Hope to see you there.
